    Extremem example but if there was a RB that scored guaranteed at least 2 tds per game (there was LT) and lets just say that he fumbled 1x per game as well (lost and returned for a TD). The RBs net is still a positive 7 points.


    As you mentioned when games can be won or lost on 3 points. If the points are positive should they not outweigh or be factored in.


    (Its about time for Melvin to fumble. I have a feeling 2 of them may be on deck sadly)
    Sure, a RB can add value with all the other stuff they do, but it should be compared to a sort of 'replacement level' or league average. As far as I know, there's no such thing as a 'nose for the end zone', so I don't think actual TD production matters that much. But maybe.

    But yeah, if a RB's production is well above average, that goes in the plus column. Pass protection, etc. Heck, good pass pro might stop a strip sack and so on, and that should matter.

    I'm not saying I have any clear answers, except that we should factor in ball security traits probably more than we realize.

    Considering that RB's should be strong enough and disciplined enough to fumble rarely, it's a precursor.

    Look at Tiki Barber's career.
